Salman Khan played a police office in Patthar Ke Phool in 1991. Thirteen years later he returns to reclaim his khaki uniform for debutant director Puneet Issar's Garv: Pride And Honour co-starring Shilpa Shetty.

The actor talks about the film in detail:

What's Garv: Pride and Honour all about?

It's about a very honest cop. He has a family -- a sister, a mother, and a friend who is a Muslim. How two honest guys in that team get stuck and cornered by dishonest cops, dishonest politicians, and the junta who don't have the will to stand up to anyone is what Garv is basically all about.

This guy fights against all odds and against the dishonest

  people. There are a lot of temptations, a lot of power. He is not misusing them at all. He is funny. He has a good sense of humour. He is ruthless, yet very gentle, loving and caring. He has no mercy, but gets merciful.

All these qualities are very contradictory. But I think these are the right qualities a man should have. He should have love as well as hatred.

You are born with these qualities. The way you use them, to what extent you take them and on whom you use them is totally up to you. If somebody is coming after my family I won't say, 'Theek hai, aap maar do' [go on, hurt them]. I will make sure that I reach that person before he reaches my family.
